Author has written 6 stories for Oh My Goddess!.
I always liked anime and manga, ever since I saw a few series all the way back to early 90's. Probably the one that stands out is Oh My Goddess, a series that I followed for probably more than a decade so far. Actually the manga's ending is what made me start writing my first story.
Other than that, I'm also enjoying playing video games, computers and everything related to technology.
My first gaming system was in fact a Game Boy that I got back in 92-93 (if I remember correctly). So I got to see the industry move all the way from those 2D sprites to the modern 3D graphics.
My list of active projects:
Ah! The Following day
This is actually the first fanfiction that I've ever written and combines several ideas that I had, into one single story. My primary goal is to continue from where the Ah! My Goddess manga series had left of and try to keep as close to that style, as I add new content. It is going to be a rather long story, but I will indeed try to keep it going.
Ah! The lost contract
My second story and a complete reboot of the AMG series, starting from the very beginning. However, this isn't a retelling of the series, but, a different take on the manga. In other words, it's heavily inspired by AMG and a lot of things will be familiar. Still, I won't rewrite the existing chapters and instead work with different ideas that might have some similarities at certain points, but, will also contain many differences too. Like my first story, this will be a long one, as well, and I'll try my best to keep it updated along with the other.
Ah! My Gilded Cage
This is another reboot of the AMG series, yet one dramatically different in style and mood compared to the others I've so far written. It was actually the product of several ideas I've gotten from reading the manga's last and by far longest arc, and at some point, I really wanted to try my hands on a somewhat different type of story. And like the others, this will be a somewhat lengthy story, too.
All three of the above stories (Ah! The Following day, Ah! The lost contract and Ah! My Gilded Cage) share the same basic background as far as the backstory is concerned. Of course, given the differences between them, certain things are inevitably modified in order to accommodate the needs of each story. That being said, there's no need to know anything in advance (other than what's canon for the AMG series) and I'll treat each as an independent work. Even when certain events will have to be mentioned again, I won't simply copy parts from one story and drop them to the other. Instead, I'll rewrite them (and in certain instances from other characters' perspective) in hopes to avoid making them too repetitive and explore other views of the same incident.
I am also currently working with HotelKatz, IdiAmeanDada, GaianKnignt and Angelalex242 of the Goddess Relief Office on a Oh My Goddess and Star Trek Online crossover story. It is under the STGoddessProject account.
Even if I'm really late, I'll do my hardest to continue and never abandon a story.
My list of finished projects and one-shots:
Ah! My license suspension
A fun project I started after a suggestion I got from ObeliskX. It's completely unrelated of my other works and intended as a thing of its own. It's intended as an AU version of the manga and features an alternative pairing (at least compared to the rest of my works). The story is now finished with a total of 12 chapters and a final one that acts as the epilogue.
As part of HotelKatz's Skuld world 2016 challenge, I've decided to write a one-shot that features the youngest of the three Norns. It's also the first story I finish and despite being the shortest too, I hope it's enjoyable one nonetheless.
Ah! The devil's in the details
This is a small idea I had while writing the ‘Miss Keiichi’ arc in one of my stories (The lost contract), that was partially inspired by the equivalent arc from the canon series. It's a one shot that's loosely related to some elements that are also used in Almighty Skuld, but both can be read independently.
Just a fun fact: I had the hardest time to come up with some username when I first made my FanFiction account, so I ended up using 'zeroIQ' as a joke (sounded smart enough). I did eventually realize that it's actually a fairly common one on various sites. To avoid any confusion, I only use this particular name here on FanFiction . So if you run into it elsewhere on the net, that's someone else.
And an even funnier one: I seem to have the bad habit of using a different username on every site I know. How I can even remember all those is a mystery...
Speaking of usernames: I'm active on the "Goddess Relief Office" site, under the username 'vanagandr'.
Additionally, I have an account over at Archive of our own (ao3) under the same username as in here (zeroIQ) and I'm planning to keep all stories there, as well.
I would also like to thank oSuzakuo (over at deviantart) for letting me use her artwork as a cover for my stories. And for those who might be wondering, that's an image of Hild back when she was younger (prior to Urd's birth). If anyone wishes to view the picture in its full resolution, feel free to check the artist's page on deviantart, she also has some other excellent artwork to see.
